The authors address the analysis of the work Diplomatic Days by Edith O'Shaugnessy, the wife of a North American diplomat during the first years of the Mexican Revolution, as a discursive set that defines the representations about Mexico. The work can be approached from different leads, but we highlight the sociocultural landscape, which the author understands as Mexicanness, a mixture of history, social and cultural features of the country.
The author analyzes the migratory trajectory of Tommaso Buscetta in Argentina in the second half of the 20th century, engaging journalistic and academic sources, both Argentine and Italian. Although the evidence gathered is not enough yet in order to draw an articulated vision that allows a fully understanding of Buscetta's alleged links with local political and economic actors as well as with other mafiosi present in Argentina, some preliminary findings suggest that this is an issue that deserves more academic attention.
The author describes the challenges and opportunities of the new Bolivian educational paradigm activated in rural primary schools.
